Google plans to have its driverless car road-ready in a couple years

Google plans to have its driverless car road-ready in a couple years

Google revealed it plans to build its own self-driving cars from the ground up.

Best of all, there’s more room for texting and/or applying make-up as there’s no steering wheel, accelerator or brakes. But, it does have more sensors in strategic spots than is possible in a regular vehicle. It is also equipped with a big “stop” button. In addition to all this tech, Google’s autonomous car includes internal power steering and power brakes.

So when can we get these easier modes of transportation? Google founder Sergey Brin says, “Within a couple of years, we’ll — if we’ve passed the safety metrics we’ve put in place, which is to be significantly safer than a human driver … have them on the road,” he said.
